Hello everyone, long time no see “huh?” Well this is due to your host taking a vacation and then battling allergies on top of cold. Fun, fun, fun I must say but I’m back so let’s see what I’m smoking now. I decided to take a break from the Famous five pack challenge and go with the Rocky Patel Vintage 1992 to review. So with the history behind us, its time to get into this review.
CIGAR MAKE UP:
WRAPPER: Ecuadorian Sumatra
BINDER & FILLER: Nicaraguan / Dominican & Nicarauguan
Length/Ring: 6.5 X 52
Price: I paid $ 9.50.
My Observations: This cigar has a wonderful dark chocolate leaf wrapper that has small non noticable veins. Trust me this is a true gem to the eye and if this smoke is anything like its appearance, we are in for a great ride. On a closer inspection, I found no imperfections and found the cap to be perfectly centered. On my finger touch inspection, I found no soft spots.
Cigar Label: Rocky changed this label to black and gold so that the consumer can now tell the difference from the 1990. I believe he made the right choice and picked colors that truly honor this fantastic cigar. Ooops, I think I just gave away my view of this cigar. Sorry!
Snip: Straight cut.
Pre-Draw: Smooth and spicy.
Flavors: The 1st third of this cigar consisted of a rich complex spicy flavor that wows your palate. The 2nd third continued with the spicy and coffee but was joined with hints of caramel. The last third continued with these flavors and I can see why this use to be Rocky’s favorite cigar.
Burn line: Perfect.
Liked it: Yes
Recommend it: Yes
Hint: Smoke this one, you will thank me later.
Until Next Time
